I. Welcome/Intro

There were no changes to the agenda.

II. RIPE mailing list code of conduct

The Chairs agreed on a code of conduct that will apply to mailing lists and the RIPE Forum.

III. DMARC/mailing lists solution

The Chairs discussed the issue of DMARC being used by some email service providers, which prevented some people from receiving emails via the mailing lists. The emails are still being received by users with email accounts that are not using DMARC and are recorded in the mailing list archives. The RIPE NCC will continue to investigate possible solutions and report back to the Chairs.

IV. RIPE Meeting webcast and YouTube

The RIPE NCC asked the Chairs if they were open to the idea of YouTube or a similar service to being used to stream RIPE Meetings. This would be an alternative to the existing streaming functionality, it would not replace it. The video archives would continue to be hosted by the RIPE NCC. The Chairs didn't object to the RIPE NCC researching this further.

V. RIPE Meeting 77/Side Room

The Chairs discussed how to better inform their decisions about which WGs were given the main or side room. They agreed to gather more information about people's preferences.

VI. RIPE Meeting diversity

An update was given on the work of the WG Chairs and PC members who are looking at diversity at RIPE Meetings.

VII. Feedback on RIPE 74 meeting plan

It was agreed that this could be done via the mailing list.

VIII. Administrative/technical overview of RIPE 74

Issues discussed included: speakers being unable to see the timing signs, coffee being served earlier, food and coffee being available before the GM, the cloakroom being unavailable at certain times.

IX. AOB

It was noted that the room for the Wednesday BoF was too small. Praise was given for the fact that it was now possible to pay with credit card at the registration desk.
